So tonight I was practicing two things at once. I was holding a toy above my head in order to get a good “I want it” face from Ray and I was celebrating the fact that he is maturing enough to sit and want it while exibiting a little impulse control. Yay, Ray! Thanks for all the great feedback yesterday. Today’s picture and your nice comments reaffirm the fact that we love our pooches so much and with great training, both formal and informal, plus perserverance and patience from us we will “get there.”
Yes! The other thing I've noticed is that sometimes we're so busy concentrating on the difficult, that we forget to see where we did make the progress (I am completely guilty of this!). Good for Ray!
Aw, what a cute picture! Love that face! Impulse control is huge (and hard!), that's great progress!
I'm not sure how you guys get anything done with that precious face around! What a sweet nugget. I try to remember that in 6 months, we'll (hopefully) look back on these hardships now and think about how far we've come.
Way to go, Ray! You are growing into a fine gentleman right in front of our eyes!
Ray, you sure is a handsome dude 🙂 xx00xx

Good job, Ray! All that impulse control totally paid off; this is a very cute picture!
Nice picture Ray!
I do that all the time. Something mundane will happen then I will realize I had never been able to do that before. e.g. playing tug and being able to look away!
It gets so much better with each month!
Good boy! He looks so sweet and innocent here:P
What a fab picture, I bet I would be great friends with him!
I bet you would, too!
Looks are soooo deceiving. 🙂 No, really he is very sweet.
Hi! I just found you through PItlandia and wanted to say hello. 🙂 I look forward to reading your posts!
